    provided you've updated your skins with CUSTOM this version should be fully functional

    Oh and i also included the exectbl.ini entries for my flash skin.. THIS is another reason as to why it wasnt working as intended lol
    also for a more universal command you can use this.

    Code:
    "MENU;ratings.skin||RunQW;$rrpath$Ratings\ratecheck.exe|$CURTRACK$"
    this uses the rrpath as a var so no matter what dir RR is installed to the command will still work.

    getting close.

    everything is working almost.

    every song seems to take the rating of the last song rated.
    So for example, if i rate a track as 5 stars, all songs from then on show that they are rated 5 stars.
    Rate another song as 3 stars, now all songs are 3 songs, even those previously rated 5 stars.
    If i delete all 5 of the m3u files (should wipe all ratings) and restart RR, every song is rated as 3 stars, even though none of those playlist exist yet.
    Another thing i noticed, if i rate a song at this point it (5star) it will create the playlist for 5star and 3star.


    almost there

    one other thing i noticed, i think the problem is.

    example:
    5 songs loaded in playlist

    rate track 01 as 5 stars, its written to 5 stars.m3u
    rate track 02 as 3 stars, its written to 3 stars.m3u and the contents of all other m3u files are cleared.

    if i manually edit the m3u files with the songs that should be under that rating, everything works perfect, till i rate another song.

    do me a favor and add these to your exectbl.ini and see if it still does that. i'm not having those problems here:

    Code:
    "ONSONGSTART","SETVARBYCODE;curtrack;trackpath"
    "ONSKINSTART","SETVARBYCODE;curtrack;trackpath"

    i was just about to ask about the $curtrack$ i didnt see it referenced or set anywhere else and a quick scan of SkinCommands.txt didnt show it so i was wondering if was a typo for a standard command.

    you could of prob used $TRACKPATH$ that is a standard RR var instead, that way you dont have to set the var you can just use it.

    Everything works perfect now.
    Thanks

    another update

    there was some inconsistency in the way star rating.exe was done as opposed to the other .exe's. star rating.exe was still only working with the "whats happening" plugin from ver 1.0. I fixed this in the coding and adapted all my sample skins(and lsx). Any of you using custom skins need to update them again (i know i know). Basically, you just add "$CURTRACK$ to the end of each star rating.exe button. for example:

    old button code:
    RUNQ;C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings\star rating.exe|5

    new button code:
    RUNQ;C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Ratings\star rating.exe|5$CURTRACK$

    do this for all 5 star rating.exe buttons... or just copy the skin sample over

    glad its working for you now and sorry if you lost playlists cause i left that info out lol. in regards to $curtrack$ vs. $trackpath$, well guino was teaching me how to use variables by example when i first started working on the ratings plugin and i kinda just used his example in the code. I could change it now but i'd probably mess somethin else up in the process

    yeah, its all working good now so no need for more changes.

    dont worry about the lost playlist, they were only temp ones i use on my desktop, i dont care about those. The ones in my car i believe are still good.

    lsx void ratings skin update

    only for people using lsxvoid RR skin

    STEP1:
    download the attached file and unzip it into the lsxvoid skins dir, overwrite any existing files.


    STEP2:
    DONOT copy and paste, these lines already exist , they just need to be found and updated

    ExecTBL.ini entries, found in skin dir, not root of RR

    Code:
    "ONSKINSTART","SETUPMENULABEL01||SETTOPAPPSALL||SETTOPLABELALL||LSONSKINSTART||SETVARBYCODE;ANTISTATUS;STATUS||SETVARBYCODE;curtrack;trackpath"
    "RATINGS","MENU;ratings.skin||RunQW;$rrpath$Ratings\ratecheck.exe|$curtrack$"
    "ONSONGSTART","SETVARBYCODE;curtrack;trackpath||ratecheck"
    "ratecheck","setind;CUSTOM1starindicator;OFF||setind;CUSTOM2starindicator;OFF||setind;CUSTOM3starindicator;OFF||setind;CUSTOM4starindicator;OFF||setind;CUSTOM5starindicator;OFF||SETVARBYCODE;curtrack;trackpath||RunQ;$rrpath$Ratings\ratecheck.exe|$curtrack$"
    "ratecheck2","RunQW;$rrpath$Ratings\ratecheck.exe|$curtrack$"

    STEP3:

    menu and audio player indicators need to be updated.
    in "menu.skin" and "audio_player.skin" edit the 5 indicators in these files so the format is like below

    before "!5starindicator"
    after "CUSTOM5starindicator"

    i would just include the .skin files and ExecTBL.ini for you to copy over your existing ones, but my local copies of these files have other changes that are not compatible with the current released version of lsxvoid. So you have to manually update these files till the next full release of lsxvoid.

    if anyone has any serious problems doing the manual update of those files, send them to me and ill update them for you and post them back.
    I dont have a local copy of the release ver of lsxvoid, only the unreleased update.

    if someone wants to post those files, the only files i would need are
    menu.skin
    audio_player.skin
    ExecTBL.ini (found in skin dir)

    but the instructions above should be good to follow.

    Thanks LS and SonicX.
    I've been hurting without this plugin for too long. I did the steps that you posted, LS, and everything is working great.

    LS, did you want the updated .ini files? I believe that the ones I have are not really modified but not 100%. I can post those. I think that these instructions you listed are pretty easy to follow but let me know if you want me to post the .ini files.
